Manchester United remain favourites for Panathinaikos starlet Sotirios Ninis.

Sport says while the 20 year-old Greece international is interesting Real Madrid and Barcelona, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is determined to take the youngster to Old Trafford.

United are said to have had one offer of €8 million for Ninis rejected by Panathinaikos earlier this month.

And it's claimed Ferguson will soon return with an improved €9.5 million bid - while the Greeks refuse to budge from their €10 million asking price.
